Credit where it is due: Andrew Little is setting a new record


Politics has been having trouble getting above the noise of allegedly sexually violated strippers and allegedly sexually harassed secretaries.   And boy has Andy been lucky.

He’s made a few boo boos over the last few days, but as they haven’t hit the media, he can get away with them.  After all, we’re all allowed to be incompetent when nobody really notices. 

Mind you, he hasn’t used Twitter for five days, nothing on Facebook for four days, so we can only rely on some of the comments he’s made at the request of the media.


And no wonder he is hiding:

  • appeared naked on a rug
  • made a joint appearance with right-winger Stuart Nash, and
  • got absolutely zero out of the Auditor General and is still being sued for defamation

Some people suggested that either one of those three should reset the “ballsup” counter, but we want to be fair to Andrew Little and only count his true ballsups.

    Long time since we have had a password protected one here and like most of my passwords have forgotten.

      It’s the second password-protected post that has come up this week. The first one resolved spontaneously after a few minutes so maybe this one will too.

        Been through the backchats… no mention of any password. Edge of the seat stuff!

  • Old Kiwi

    Andrew Little has been hauled over the carpet this week and his lack of fund raising efforts has been totally exposed. This is a new fund raiser for the Labour Party. Send money to get the password.

  • Ok, I give in. How do you get a password?

  • OT Richter

    I tried ‘Lummox’, but no success.

    Surely having them out on a rug counts as a “balls up” !! :-)

    • Nige.

      Rug goes on the floor. That’s a balls down.

      • Ceebee

        Fair enough !

  • Big_Al

    Has anyone actually physically seen him recently? Perhaps his colleges have locked him in a cupboard out back of the Labour Headquaters. This is totally out of character for Andy.

    Like I’ve said before, the man is stupid if he doesn’t cash in on this. Limited run of 500 A1 posters @ $50.00 each or $100 for signed with a personal message. A downloadable autographed A4 with every donation on the Labour site.

      You could have that image on your wall?

      • XCIA

        No, but I would buy several with personalised messages to give to people I know who would appreciate the humour of it. I am always on the lookout for unusual gifts.

    I Googled ‘ballsup’ and was surprised at its meaning. In the old days prior to marine radios, ships needed a means of signalling emergency conditions to other ships and shore authorities. Various coloured wooden balls would be hoisted for this purpose hence an emergency condition, foul-up etc came to be known as a ‘ballsup’.

    It should be called “hiding Andrew” now….18 days and counting… yeeuus!!!
